of victims in serious condition and they will give us more information. what is interesting the ntsb gave us a time line of the last seven seconds of the crash. the crew anyhow they were going too slow and low. there were a number of indication and tried to abort the landing, the landing gear hit the jetty. and we had a tail section that broke off and the video that continues to come in from amateur videos from cell phones and other ways and means and she a dramatic slamming down and bouncing of the jet. it is amazing that it stayed together. we get first responder stories and everything from two of those inflatable slides that you see on the seat back if you look at the security card. two of those inflated inside of the jet and they had to use an a x to free the people underthem. and exacto comboifs used to cut people out. and so these stories continue to come out. we'll hear about that in the next hour and half. we'll update the conditions. this investigation continues to go forward. they are getting a lot of information. that runway where the fuselage sits is still there. the planes a arr
. >> it wasn't just slow by a few miles an hour, it was sufficient for a small. >> the ntsb told us that at 7 seconds there was a voice in the cockpit that asked to increase speed. at 4 seconds there was a device that shakes the stick which means that the aircraft is on an incipient stall. then at 1.5 seconds to go there were voices in the cockpit that said go around which is an order to go full power and take the aircraft out of danger. we know those actions were given. the question is should she have been given earlier. gregg: the answer is obviously yes. >> in terms of the outcome absolutely. but what we have to unthrough the ntsb is how we came to this position given the most of the approach -- the information we have so far tells us it seems to be fairly stable. the throttles were island and the pilots were making a steady approach. what i would say about sfo is the approach is a fairly complicated approach. the crew would have been fatigued. they would have been coming to a relatively long day and the pilot is given visual flight rules. there is visibility in excess of five miles. but m
of the victims may have been struck by an emergency vehicle responding to the crash and ntsb officials said they have reviewed surveillance footage but do not want to make a conclusion until they examine all of the evidence. for the latest on that developing story and more, we go to claudia cowan, standing by at the san francisco airport. claudia. >> reporter: good evening, eric. a federal investigator has spent the past few hours talking to the pilots and the flight crew and those interviews will be critical, by all accounts, no problems with the airplane until just seconds before it crash landed on saturday. also recovered some of the wreckage that wound up in san francisco bay, including what they are calling a significant piece of the tail, which is believed to have hit the ground first. specifically the seawall at the front edge of the runway. investigators with the national transportation safety board say the landing went from routine to disaster in less than 10 seconds. >> they were cleared to land by the towers. and then there was the accident sequence and the subsequent launch of t

, the federal aviation administration is responsible. the ntsb investigates accidents where a separate organization. but the faa does have in country experts and some countries and they may send people to travel to other countries. but they do have to work with their counterparts to make sure standards are upheld. >> bill: sure i'm wondering what the oversight is in the faa and your agency to make sure these guys know what they are doing. let me give you an example, i flew in the 1990s on air vietnam most harrowing experience, ducks walking up and down the plane. it was crazy. i would never get on another vietnam plane back then. i'm sure they have upgraded now it was a dangerous experience. the salvadorian airline during the salvadorian war was crazy some didn't even have radar. when i see a plane crash like this and the guy didn't have much experience on the 7777 even though there were four pilots, weighs in command, that makes me nervous. >> well, i think in all of these accidents we have to look at all of the facts before we reach conclusions. it's just been a couple of days. we do

runway will re-open. the wreckage of flight 214 will state out there until ntsb investigators have what they need. >> neil: i imagine that would give other folks passing by the creeps. if it was the pilot and not the plane, it is too soon to say the 777s's are out of the woods and the dreamline are won't be running into the turbulence. too early to tell but what from you heard, what do you think? >> it is early but from all the indications the pilot was -- he had 17 miles straight in final, which means you have 17-miles to set up your landing, seven seconds before the touchdown is the first one anyone noticed the air speed and altitude were too low. there wasn't enough corrective action we know of yet, until the stick shaker goes on and at -- >> what brings the stick shaker on? >> if you are in imminent danger of losing the flight, if you're stalling arings and orderly that's accompanied with the stick pusher to get air speed but they too close to the ground. >> neil: home videos we have seen shows it was obviously very, very low coming in. what was the danger? the traffic tower was tel
